I've tried and can vouch for the excellence of every entrée at Maiwand Kabob, but my favorite meal here consists of 2 or 3 appetizers, such as the bolani or aushak (Afghan ravioli). No restaurant can make pumpkin or spinach taste as delicious and interesting as MK. It's not fast food--orders usually take a few minutes because they actually cook-to-order,... More

The chicken kabob was spiced nicely, the yogurt sauce was excellent, and the bread was thick around the edges yummy! You can dine in or carry out. The restaurant is not as nice as the Columbia Snowden location but the food and service was equally as good!

As other reviewers have stated, the food is quite good. I had the chicken kabob lunch, which I wasn't able to finish, but did take with me for lunch the next day. The food is cooked to order; as a result, if you're going to eat here for lunch, don't expect to be in and out in a short amount... More

Although they state their hours as opening at 11am, they did not open the tours until about 11:15 and then we had to wait for food. Perhaps an off day, but disappointing after trying to get an early lunch and once the gentlemen came to open the door there was no apology or explanation to the 6 of us randomly... More

I visited Maiwand Kabob by myself on a recent business trip. I ordered the chicken and beef kabob meal. The food is ordered at a counter and brought to the table. I waited about ten minutes for mine, and it was well worth the wait. Everything was hot and fresh and clearly had been cooked to order. The meat came... More

We picked this because we were in a hurry and most of the rest of the options are standard fast food. The gentleman at the counter was born in the Middle East and guided us with great recommendations. We enjoyed the chicken kabob with a side of spinach. It came with a large bread. There was more delicious food than... More

We have been coming to Maiwand Kebob for years and keep coming back. For appetizers try the Mantwo and Pumpkin. The veggie samosas are great as well. Mantwo might be gone so go early to try this. The kebobs portions include about 8 large pieces of meat and the Naan/bread is made there. Try the Naan there as this can... More

Good selection of food and affordable. I enjoy the atmosphere, and the employees are very nice. The food is a cultural experience and the amount could be shared by two.

I was so bummed out when I tried this location. I met a friend for lunch thinking it would be very good as I go to the one on Dobbin in Columbia quite often and it is awesome. This was not even close to the same experience. First we waited a good 45 minutes for our food, then it was... More
